Get yourself an Impala parts book like year one or goodmark to see how the different mouldings attach and to order new clips...The body side mouldings bolt on ,the windshield snaps on and you need a tool to remove the windshield trim ...hopfully someone that knew what they were doing took it apart and didnt destroy all the trim removing it..

Exactly what moulding? There are many different ones on that car that are attached many different ways. Post some photos if you can, I doubt there are any videos (if that is even needed) but we can walk you thru it if you give us some clues as to what you have, what mouldings and what clips and attachment stuff you have.

IIRC, the 65 didn't have body side mldgs [those came in 66] , just hood & trunk , glass reveal, rocker panel [some models] badging- most were "T" bolt mounted except for frt &rear glass that used a stud mount clip , all pretty straight-forward.

pics of what you're doing would certainly help!!
